WE DESPERATELY NEED FOSTER HOMES!
Animal Education and Rescue (AEAR) is a foster-based rescue. This means we don’t have a shelter or kennel and all of our animals stay in foster homes until they can be adopted. We are always looking for more people willing to become foster homes because for each new person able to open their home and heart to an animal, that is one more life we can save.
Fostering is a temporary commitment to care for the animal until a permanent home is found. All medical expenses are payed for by AEAR. Even food, toys, crates, litter supplies, etc. can be provided if needed.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN BECOMING A FOSTER PARENT?
The first step is to determine if fostering is right for you. Please watch the video below and review the Foster Care Guidelines which will answer many of your questions and help you decide.
Next step is to fill out the Foster Questionnaire. Your questionnaire will be reviewed by an AEAR staff member who will determine your suitability for fostering and for which type of animals. You will then be contacted and asked to fill out a Foster Application and Agreement.
You will also need to attend a New Volunteer Orientation event to learn more about the responsibilities of fostering and philosophies of the AEAR organization. New Volunteer Orientation events are held the first week of each month. Refer to our events calendar for exact dates. After or prior to the meeting you will also need to fill out a Volunteer Application and Agreement.
